ryan and marco rubio at the american enterprise institute where they took on that challenge. >> both parties tend to divide americans into our voters and their voters. let's be really clear, republicans must steer far clear of that trap. >> i have heard it suggested that the problem is that the american people have changed. that too many people want things from government. but i'm still convinced that the overwhelming majority of our people just want what my parents had, a chance. >> george will, i think marco rubio used the phrase, middle-class, more than two dozen times in that speech. >> yeah, usually the forgotten middle class and it's all we talk about. is the forten middle class. the republicans' problem is the national problem, the sense of stagnation among americans who are not on the ladder of upward mobility. right now, the widening disparities. health care costs and the cost of that which puts you on the ladder, the cost of college. in about four, five weeks, we are going to pass a milestone, a trillion dollars of student debt. more than credit card debt in this country. t
to senator marco rubio, had a sit-down conversation with him. i guess when you talked to him, you took another crack at that science question. clarify an answer he gave to "gq" when he was asked about the age of the earth. remember, senator rubio took a little grief, saying that he was not qualified to answer the question, calling it, quote, one of life's great mysteries. remember, i'm not a scientist, man, the whole thing. yesterday, mike, i guess you spoke to him as part of the "playbook" breakfast and you gave him a chance to explain that answer. let's listen. >> how old do you think the earth is? >> first of all, the answer i gave was trying to make the same point the president made a few years ago, and that is there is no scientific debate on the age of the earth. i mean, it's established it. pretty definitively. at least 4.5 billion years old. i was referring to a theological debate which is a pretty healthy debate. >> mike, what did you come away with talking to marco rubio yesterday? >> people in the room came away thinking that he was really smooth, really on his game. and thi
that fiscal cliff. this morning president obama and senator marco rubio battling it out over what to do about taxes. their remarks are just ahead? landmark legislation in michigan that could change the face of the unions forever michigan is now a right-to-work state. will others follow? clayton? >> plus, is he behind on his child support. so one judge ordered this father of nine to stop having kids just stop having kids. but is that fair? is that allowed? can they do that? a little bit like china, perhaps. "fox & friends" hour two starts right now. >> ainsley was singing. i can't help but sing that. they actually -- they have a band. the lady's voice i saw her. >> the "fox & friends" band? >> yes. >> really? >> i was standing in the audience and another girl that i worked with she said you know she sings the "fox & friends" ballad. >> really? >> i met her. >> go on tickets. i will go on stub hub for that that's ainsley air earhardt in for alisyn. >> in for dave briggs. fiscal cliff. just a few days left. if you count christmas. only a few weeckets and got the christmas break so congress bette
like mike lee, ted cruz, marco rubio, ron johnson, pat toomey and rand paul. yeah, rand paul, the man who wants to abolish virtually every government agency and restore the gold standard. with jim demint gone, i guess you could look at rand paul as the de facto leader of the tea party senators. establishment republicans, they ought to be nervous. senator lindsey graham looked like he was in a state of shock on the senate floor today. >> i met with jim demint this morning, and i, to say i was stunned is an understatement. he has always been a friend. somebody i could count on. personally, we've really enjoyed our time together. and i just -- i was stunned this morning. >> the tea party has poisoned, i think, the well of the senate and the republican ideology. the gop is so far out of the mainstream right now you can hardly recognize them from ten years ago. a new quinnipiac poll shows americans support raising taxes on the wealthy 65% to 31%. republicans, i think they're in the wilderness. they face a changing demographical situation in this country they don't know how to deal with. th
of the earliest backers of florida senator marco rubio. but demint has also angered party leaders by supporting far right candidates who lost their general elections. >> i'm not a witch. >> reporter: candidates like christine o'donnell of delaware, 0,o in 2010, aired an ad assuring voters she was not a witch. demint says he can be a more effective communicator of eonservative ideas by leading a ehink tank. he will also get a hefty raise. the current president of the heritage foundation makes more than $1 million a year. a u.s. senator, scott, makes $174,000. an pelley: nancy, thank you. washington state's new marijuana law went into effect today, make together first state to legalize the drug for recreational use itt people 21 or older. john blackstone tells us those that are supposed to enforce law are a little foggy on the details. >> reporter: at seattle police headquarters, jonah spangenthal lee was given the task of explaining the state state's new marijuana law on an online guide. what do you call it? e. mari-what-now? the guide to legal pot use in x.attle. >> reporter: a lot of people ar
say it's a cautionary tale and marco rubio talked about this equation in his saturday address. >> we must reform our uncertainty job killing tax code by getting rid of unjustified loopholes, but our goal should be again rating new tax revenue not new taxes. >> clayton: we like things fast. >> and do you do this during christmas shopping, buying something for yourself. >> clayton: all the time. >> alisyn: all the time. >> clayton: i find way to pay myself back first. >> a study came out and said impulse buying costs all of us about $200 per month. >> clayton: what kind of impulses, i'm thinking of stuff at the checkout aisle. i need gum. and i need to buy some candle votives, suddenly. >> people buy clothing and shoes. >> women do that, and the study finds mostly. and i know the feeling, you go out shopping for somebody, wait a minute, this fur vest is on sale? i suddenly need one. last weekend we had a kids segment on the show, remember that? we had almost like the netflix for kids toy, and the-- >> yes. >> clayton: they had a neat magnet set for kids and i looked at it and went on a
. then, marco rubio on jobs and education policy. >> hello, everybody. over the last few weeks, there's been a lot of talk about deadlines we're facing on jobs and taxes and investments. but with so much noise and so many opinions flying around, it can be easy to lose sight of what this debate is really about. it's not about which political party comes out on top, or who wins or loses in washington. it's about making smart decisions that will have a real impact on your lives and the lives of americans all across the country. right now, middle-class tax cuts are set to expire at the end of the year. time is running out. and there are two things that can happen. first, if congress does nothing, every family in america will see their income taxes automatically go up on january 1st. a typical middle-class family of four would get a $2,200 tax hike. that would be bad for families, it would be bad for businesses, and it would drag down our entire economy. now, congress can avoid all this by passing a law that prevents a tax hike on the first $250,000 of everybody's income. that means 98% of
senator marco rubio, winner of the 2012 jack kemp foundation leadership award, will be speaking. along with congressman paul ryan who won the award last year. the award named after the former congressman from buffalo, who also ran for president, served as secretary of housing and urban development. and up until that awards dinner begins, 7:50 eastern, we're going to bring you more from the campaign to fix the debt event with white house economic advisor gene spurling. he called congressional republicans' deficit reduction plan, quote, disappointing, and very unfortunate. we'll also hear from ohio republican senator rob portman. >> morning. thank you all for joining us this morning. i am working with the campaign to fix the debt and i'm the president of the committee for responsible federal budget. and i'm really excited to join a phenomenal panel that we have with us today to help the campaign fix the debt which is a large nonpartisan coalition that is focused on helping members of congress come together to put in place a comprehensive debt deal. so i'm very delighted that today is wha
a conservative movement, to get people involved in politics, like marco rubio, who jim helped early on in his primary i just think is going to be a great legacy. from a state point of view, we have lost one of our great champions. but he and debbie, jim and debbie have raised four wonderful children. they got great grandkids, and i knowim is looking forward to staying involved in pushing the conservative cause outside the body. he was an effective voice in the senate, whether you agreed with jim or not. he really did strongly and passionately advocate for his positions and did it very effectively. jim made the republican party, quite frankly, look inward and do some self-evaluation. conservatism is an asset, not a liability, as we try to govern this country in the 21st century. and i look forward to staying in touch with jim and to working with him at the heritage foundation to see what we can do to improve the fate of our country so we will not become greece. no one is more worried about this nation's unsustainable debt situation than senator demint. i've seen him deinvolve over time to some
coups and victories was getting senator marco rubio elected in 2010. >> rubio is a rising star. >> yes. >>> well a minneapolis hospital is apologizing for a maternity ward mix-up. that horrified two new young mothers. tammy's baby boy was mistakenly placed in the wrong bassinet, taken to the wrong mother and breast-fed by that mom. the staff at the hospital acknowledged the error after the woman realized the id band did not match up and the newborn was not hers. the baby's mother couldn't believe what had happened. >> how could this happen? what do you mean he went to somebody else's room? what do you mean, somebody else breast-fed my son? i'm, just what? >> the hospital is investigating the accident. meantime, both moms and the baby are undergoing tests to make sure nothing was passed on to that child. which that is the most important angle of that story. >> exactly. >> the hospital gave an apology letter, promised a full investigation, and will cover the costs of any additional tests, the least they could do. i have never given birth. >> at least not to a child. >> there is -- they t
republicans, the jeb hencerlings and paul ryan and bobby jindal and marco rubio, a lot of strong, younger voices in the party i would like to see more on. i turn on the tv and see newt gingrich back on tv. he hasn't been a republican leader in about 16 years. that's a long time. we need to shift and hear some of the newer voices in the party. >> i have to say just because you have some gray hair doesn't mean you can say those things. this isn't just about being inappropriate. >> i agree, kiki. >> sometimes the truth is inappropriate. these are just dead wrong. they're promoting myths and unfactual statements and you just can't let that go. whether you're young or old, you know better than that and you shouldn't be doing it. >> i agree. i think there are smart ways to talk about a lot of these issues. i think we're going to get that opportunity and it's going to be a test for the party for how we talk about things like immigration reform. if we change how we talk about and think about the immigrant community in this country, that's going to make -- i think that's going to make a difference
when these come out. >> bill:est an, we found out yesterday, you wrote about this. marco rubio has seen the light. it wasn't so long ago he said don't ask me how old the earth is. maybe 100 years. seemed to be saying that he was a creationist, if you will. and yesterday yeah, you do have your ifb in. >> oh, yeah. >> bill: in an interview -- i forget. from politico. he tried to say no, i'm not really as dumb as i seem to be a few weeks back. here it is. >> the answer i gave was actually trying to make the same point the president made a few years ago. and that is there is no scientific debate on the able of the earth. it is established definitively. at least four and a half billion years old. >> bill: why is rubio getting into this anyhow? >> you have to thank "gq" for asking him the first question. they asked him in an interview how old do you think the earth is? he said i'm not a scientist man. classic rubio quote now. then he -- now, he's saying that he -- i guess he talked to some scientists and now he beli
. republicans will up the next morning and said, may be marco rubio was right. we have a problem. that has shaken up the politics of the issue. i will be interested to hear from senator warner on this. i think it has created the possibility for some movement on comprehensive immigration legislation that will also deal with more particular issues that you're talking about today, and we will be talking about tonight. i commend the miller center for once again having the incredible foresight to have seen this month ago and to realize that this be the issue that everyone will want to talk about after the election. i think all of you know that in washington -- the governor gave me a long and full sun introduction -- wholesome introduction. i think you know these three people very well. there is teresa sullivan who was president and wasn't president and now is president of the university of virginia. we are all very happy about that. she is also a professor of sociology focusing on a labor mobility issues. senator mark warner who in recent months and years has had an unbelievable temerity to act
story. it says here that marco rubio does not want to be the hispanic candidate, and paul ryan does not want to be the austerity guy. both want to run for president. each is trying to change their own image. our cameras will be there covering that dinner. from pennsylvania, a republican caller, what do you make of this bid put out by house republicans yesterday? caller: i think it is bad because i am a senior and i depend on social security and medicare. host: continue. caller: i think it is not right because i am a senior and there are a lot of other seniors out there who depend on social security and medicare. every time you hear something, it is social security and medicare. the seniors are numbers. we have plenty of us out here. i am a veteran of vietnam. it seems like every time something comes up, the american people have to fight, fight, fight. we are tired of fighting. it is time for the republican party to stop arguing with them bending the 2% of the republican party is not going to do me no good. what about the 98% of us, and the seniors also? independent, an c analler ca
of moving in that direction here? we've seen marco rubio make some comments. we've seen even paul ryan as well. do we see a shift that's happening here that's a little more immigrant friendly. >> i think losing for a second time and getting a low number of hispanics really stunk. it caused a wake-up call that we haven't seen before, and i think there's this realization that the immigration issue, though not the priority issue for hispanics, is an emotional issue and that we are losing hispanics and not able to talk to hispanics about other issues like the economy because, you know, because of the rhetoric, because of the tone issues like and the policy on lishz line immigration. i think there is a realization. now, you know, suzanne, this is washington. there's a huge difference between a realization and legislation. we'll just have to see what happens, and we're going to have to see what kind of skin in the game president obama and the democrats have come up with. this is going to have to be a bipartisan solution. >> all right. you mentioned mitt romney in his grave. let's see if he b

millions and his work. marco rubio, pat toomey. very conservative, anti-tax, anti-government purists in the mold of jim demint. however, he also backed in republican primaries a number of republican candidates who simply were not electable according to the republican establishment and the establishment was right. for example, remember christine o'donnell, i'm not a witch, from delaware. ken buck of colorado. and others. so those are some of the reasons why he definitely has ruffled many a-feather with the party leaders and i have to tell you first thing i saw when the senate republican leader mitch mcconnell released a statement today was making the point that demint had, quote, uncompromising service. didn't have to read between the lines too much to see there's a backhanded compliment. >> dana, what about bigger picture here and talking about the republican party aenl just talking about folks like ryan and rubio, let's say, part of maybe the next generation republicans. do you think that demint's brand of republicanism is falling out of favor with sort of the newer version of what
, president obama and senator marco rubio in the republican address are racheting up the rhetoric. >> we can and should do more than just extend middle class tax cuts. and i stand ready to work with republicans or a plan that spurs economic growth, creates jobs and reduces our deficit. a plan that gives both sides some of what they want. >> tax increases will not solve our $16 trillion debt. only economic growth and a reform of entitlement programs will help control the debt. we must reform our complicated, uncertain job-killing tax code by getting rid of unjustifi loo holls. >> molly ball and david nakamura. thanks for joining me. >> good to be here. >> david so house speaker john boehner says there's no progress to report. the white house says republicans are to blame for dragging their feet. it seems at least publicly we're getting nowhere. is there anything bigger churning behind the scenes? >> alex, i wish i had good news for you. there's not much going on. certainly at the staff level there's still talks going on. the president did have an onization with john boehner. both sides public
civilization first expands, how money was created? host: the republican address came from marco rubio who has had a higher profile the last couple of months including his acceptance of the camp award in washington. here is more from the florida senator in the republican response. [video clip] >> americans of struggling to keep middle-class jobs for two reasons. we're not creating enough of these jobs and too many people did not have the skills for the jobs that are being created. a limited government can and help solve these challenges. we must get the national debt under control. tax increases will not solve the $16 trillion debt. only reform of the entitlement programs will help control the debt. we must reform the tax code by getting rid of unjustified loopholes. the goal should be to justify new tax payers, not new taxes. regulations are needed, but they cost money to follow. the more expensive regulation is, the less money a business has to give raises or hire new people. we must not let innovation go to waste. we have the potential for all kinds of middle-class jobs from the fields and
four years to build a conservative movement, to get people involved in politics, like marco rubio, who jim helped early on in his primary i just think is going to be a great legacy. from a state point of view, we have lost one of our great champions. but he and debbie, jim and debbie have raised four wonderful children. they got great grandkids, and i know jim is looking forward to staying involved in pushing the conservative cause outside the body. he was an effective voice in the senate, whether you agreed with jim or not. he really did strongly and passionately advocate for his positions and did it very effectively. jim made the republican party, quite frankly, look inward and do some self-evaluation. conservatism is an asset, not a liability, as we try to govern this country in the 21st century. and i look forward to staying in touch with jim and to working with him at the heritage foundation to see what we can do to improve the fate of our country so we will not become greece. no one is more worried about this nation's unsustainable debt situation than senator demint. i've seen hi

are in trouble. i will correct one comment, the democratic side and marco rubio and jerry moran, we have put forward legislation long before the election that says let's look at this, the competition issue and put forward an approach that many of us, including those of us in the business world, have been talking about for decades. let's recognize that while we know that we do need to prime the pump with science, engineering, math graduates, native-born americans, partly in the numbers with middle school with girls and children of color and the enormous challenges short and long term, we also have to still continue to attract talent from the world. one of the ways that we can and will is if we change the visa policies. if we had visa policies and immigration policies in effect in the 1970's and 1980's that we have now, we would never have had intel or google or the host of companies because many of those founders to graduate from american universities would not have been allowed to stay. as terry sullivan mentioned, are billed as a variety of things. the two most important is start with the l
